Our goal in founding the Philadelphia Game Lab is to create a nexus for creative and technical learnings and collaboration in this area. We are working with local Universities as well as game industry experts and entities to facilitate a community where the full value of local resources can be a destination point for publishers, investors and related businesses.
The creative economy of Philadelphia has achieved national status as a result of some meaningful successes driving broad recognition; it forms perhaps the most significant element of an environment in which population is growing and lifestyle choices continue to drive desirability of housing stock. At the same time, though, there continues to be a mismatch between the very large number of skilled technical and creative people, especially students, and the small number of creative work opportunities in this city. The bulk of such young people will depart from the city after graduation. This initiative is intended as one of many to improve specifically this situation.We are located at: 1701 Walnut Street, 8th Floor Philadelphia, PA 19103 -The entrance is on the West side of 17th Street, just North of Walnut Street.
